Bathroom Hand Dryers Do More Harm Than Good

A recent study found that bathroom hand dryers do more harm than good. Scientists from the University of Connecticut put data-gathering plates under hand dryers on campus and found that after 30 seconds each plate had between 18 and 60 different bacteria colonies—including bacteria found in poop!

While the hand dryers tested did not have HEPA filters, the researchers noted that the filters could only eliminate some of the bacteria.
